Help w/ drawing path

Anonymous

In the bottom of my Plot Maker master layouts I would like to place a field that would show the drawing/ file location (i.e C:/myfile/floorplan.xxx)

Can I do something like this?

Be gentle, I am new.

Yep.

Place a new Text Box (click the text tool, give it a starting point, etc). Once you have the box to start typing text. Right-click, and you will get a menu on which the item "AutoText" appears, with an arrow next to it.

This will show you a list of all the AutoText you can place, including Path and File Name.

Play around and see what other ones may be useful to you....

I got some advice here... http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?p=52596&highlight=drawing+path#52596

I was trying to show the imported drawing's path and name, as well as the layout book name. Something in this post may help you.
